Explore the Arts and Express Yourself

National PTA has a long-standing commitment to arts education. The Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life.

Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. This 50+ year-old program helps them explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.

The 2021–2022 Reflections theme is I Will Change the World By…

Students submit their completed works of art in one or all of the available arts categories: Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, Visual Arts. 

Student winners from our school have the opportunity to move up through the Los Angeles Tenth District and California State PTA programs to the national level. Student winners will be announced in November, and will move on to the Tenth District program level.

National Reflections winners are announced in May and celebrated throughout the following year, starting at National PTA’s Convention in June. Visit the National PTA awards page for information about and artwork from our national winners.
